Nevada Teacher Corps
City Year is proud to partner with the Nevada Teacher Corps (a TNTP Teaching Fellows Program), so our alums can continue to lead on transformational change on pressing social problems.
Nevada Teacher Corps offers City Year alums
Nevada Teacher Corps uses focused practice on key skills to get new teachers off to a strong start. At every step, it emphasizes intensive classroom practice centered around teaching experience, creating a positive classroom culture and delivering content clearly; expert coaching that begins during a six-week summer training and continues throughout your first year and personalized training to set clear expectations and continually assess your progress as a new teacher. Whether you struggle with lesson planning or strive to improve your classroom management skills, Nevada Teacher Corps tailors its support and training to help you quickly get up to speed in that area and offers its Fellows the following benefits:
- full teacher’s salary and benefits (including medical, dental, vision and life insurance coverage)
- discounts through the Clark County Education Association
- teaching certification from TNTP Academy
- reduced tuition for an online Master of Science in education degree from Johns Hopkins University
- access to a supportive network of more than 33,000 alums
Why City Year loves Nevada Teacher Corps
Nevada Teacher Corps partners with district and charter public schools in the Las Vegas Valley to match Fellows to teaching vacancies in elementary education teaching positions as provisionally licensed educators. As participants in the two-year program, Fellows teach as they learn, completing standard licensure coursework and engaging in monthly professional learning directly applicable to their classroom experience. This fellowship takes place in a supportive professional learning community with the support of program coaches and colleagues as well as school-based instructional support staff. City Year strengthens an applicant’s competitiveness and chances of being selected as a Nevada Teacher Corps Fellow.

Please compare the start date for Nevada Teacher Corps to your City Year graduation date. City Year AmeriCorps members should avoid applying to Nevada Teacher Corps with a scheduling conflict, since being accepted into a program that starts before graduation would end your term of service with City Year and could have implications such as losing benefits available to you as a City Year alum.
